As I’ve written about before, along with being a blog content creator, I am also a DJ at WKNC. This semester, I decided to start fresh with a new show titled “passing by.” The premise? To put a soundtrack to life’s big and little moments with the best of indie and rock.
My first set’s premise was art pop, noise pop, and big all-encompassing feelings. It featured songs from artists such as Broadcast, Spellling, Cocteau Twins and Life Without Buildings.
My second set was a bit more specific in its parameters. As I explained in my first air break, the theme was what might have been playing over the speakers in a department store in the 90s. In this set I featured Belly, Tanya Donelly, Belle & Sebastian and (my favorite) Rilo Kiley.
I adore the process of curating these mini-soundtracks and I would love it if you tuned in. “passing by” airs every Tuesday from 1-2 p.m. on WKNC 88.1 HD-1. You never know what moment I may be trying to capture. If you are unable to tune in, I make my playlists public on my Spotify after the set has been aired, and you can always check out my Spinitron as well.
Be sure to tune in,
